Taking a prenatal vitamin is an important part of your daily routine, whether you are planning a pregnancy, pregnant, or nursing.
Why? Well, a comprehensive prenatal vitamin can help bridge the gap between your diet and the nutrients your body needs while caring for two!
When we developed vitaPearl we wanted to make something small, gentle on the stomach, and with more folic acid.
All women need 400 micrograms of folic acid every day. Women who can get pregnant should get 400 to 800 micrograms of folic acid from a vitamin or from food that has added folic acid. This is in addition to the folate you get naturally from food. Some women may need more folic acid each day. 2
This complete prenatal in one tiny pearl also provides key nutrients, including the exclusive combination of FOLMAX (folic acid), FePlus (iron), and pur-DHA.
FOLMAX, a proprietary, immediate and modified release folic acid3, is formulated to help maintain folate levels in your body throughout the day. vitaPearl provides 1.4 mg of folic acid in each daily once-a-day softgel–again, that’s 40% more folic acid than the leading prescription prenatal vitamins!1*
FePlus is a proprietary, blended chelate-containing iron combination that is quickly absorbed by the body and is gentle on the stomach, so you do not have to worry about iron-related constipation. FePlus is food-friendly and has no metallic taste, so you can take vitaPearl with or without meals. vitaPearl provides 30 mg of iron as FePlus in each once-a-day softgel.
pur-DHA, a marine-based DHA extracted from small fish such as sardines, is produced using a patented, advanced supercritical CO2 extraction and purification process. pur-DHA meets 50 strict purity tests before being released and undergoes testing for the absence of heavy metals, pesticides and other environmental contaminants. pur-DHA is also great because you will not experience fishy burp-backs common with many products that include marine-based DHA. vitaPearl provides 200 mg of DHA as pur-DHA in each once-a-day softgel.
vitaPearl may be the tiniest prescription prenatal vitamin on the market, but it is mighty. One softgel, once-a-day, contains 40% more folic acid1 than the leading prescription prenatal vitamin, as well as iron and DHA.
